    Once again, The Hamb's very own Master of None will again be at this year's Retro Rewind show punching louvers on his vintage louver press. Nate Gentry of Gentry Kustoms & Restoration will be happy to punch louvers in your sheet metal during the show. And it is only $1.50 per hole. We will also have pre-punched and painted aluminum panels for sale in three different sizes- 8" x 8" @ $10, 8" x 16" @ $20 and 16" x 16" @ $40.

    ALL of the money raised from the pre-punched panel sales and from the on-site louver punching will be donated to The Helping Hannah's Heart Foundation for children with congenital heart defects.

    So bring in those hoods, panels, etc. and have some louvers punched for a good cause. Let’s make it a goal to wear out Nate’s arm and help some kids. (Photo courtesy of Royboy Productions)

    False advertising. It shows 50 cents per louver on the machine,
    ONLY KIDDING. ATTEMPTED HUMOR
    How about making some louvered panels available on the HAMB for this charity? For those not going to Iowa.

    Getting closer to the show. We may have some extra pannels available depending on how busy we are the day of the show.

    Cool side story of the press it was hand built by a guy named Jeff Carlson from Illinois in the late 70's. He was a traditional rodder way before it was cool. He used to pull this press behind a 32 5 window painted the same lime green as the lettering at the top.
    I've considered myself the new care taker and will only fix what needs to be fixed and keep it as original as possible.

  9. ...it's a great thing you are doing to help the cause,...Jeff Carlson was a good friend of mine, one of the coolest guys I've ever known; sadly he left us way too soon,...here's a few old pics of Jeff , one towing the louver press with his flathead powered 37 Ford flatback, and a couple of his 32 five window, also flathead powered.
    Jeff would be so proud that his homemade louver press is still in operation.
    I bought a blank set of louvers from Mr. Gentry and cut out one louver to hang from my rearview mirror so a part of Jeff is always with me.

    Coming up quick. Feel free to ask questions or set up a time to get something louvered. I will also have a enclosed trailer along if we get busy. I will honor show prices, and set up shipping or delivery within reason after the show.
